This was a lovely way to spend a morning. Once you are off the main roads there is very little traffic and it is mostly flat and very pretty.
Another popular option is to take a bamboo punt down the river. Although I have to say, this place was much busier than where we went from. Apparently, it's cheaper and shorter so very popular. They punt downstream, take off the seats, then man-handle the rafts onto a truck and drive back up. You frequently see these lorries piled ridiculously high with the rafts. Despite how it looks, it was a really peaceful hour or so floating down the river.
The rafts only last about three months as the bamboo wears out through crossing the weirs in the river constantly.
However, it is the countryside that is the real star attraction.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
